"The Velardes". History of a minor college at the University of Valladolid

By Margarita Torremocha Hernández

Abstract

El colegio fundado a raíz de una manda testamentaria de Juan Velarde, por la que se creaban seis becas para estudiantes de su linaje, es el objeto de análisis de este trabajo. Se trata de un pequeño colegio que tuvo la grandeza de perdurar más de dos siglos, en el ambiente vallisoletano en el que no proliferaron estos centros seglares. En su modelo de vida se alimentó del ejemplo del Colegio Mayor Santa Cruz, al que imitó en la medida de sus posibilidades. En cuanto a su administración, estuvo prácticamente en manos de las autoridades eclesiásticas, puesto que sus patronos eran canónigos que supieron monopolizar el gobierno de esta casa. En consecuencia, las autoridades académicas permanecieron muy distantes de este pequeño colegio, al que sin embargo incorporaron en su seno, dándole su jurisdicción, lo mismo que a sus colegiales, matriculados en la Universidad de Valladolid.The college was founded due to Juan Velarde’s, by which they created six scholarships for students of the same condition as himself, and it is the aim of the analysis of this paper. It is a little college which had the purpose to perdure more than two centuries, in the atmosphere of Valladolid where these secular centers were not very common. Its way of life was fed by the example of Santa Cruz high school, to which they imitated as far as they could. Referred to its administration, it was almost completely in the hands of the ecclesiastic authorities, as their protectors were churchmen who knew how to monopolize the government of this household. In consequence, the academic authorities remained very distant from this small college, although they included it in their hearts, providing it with their jurisdiction, in the same way as they did so with their students studying at the University of Valladolid
